  • I don't know....I've always been too impatient and pretty much immediately started biting it to get the the tootsie roll in the middle. I wish I had one right now...LOL

  • LOL I actually did that once. It took like 200 some on the thick side and only like 100 something on the other. Talk about pure boredom! That must be me. LOL

  • I work an internet job where I answer questions from people all over who text them to a center in Indiana which then forwards the questions to "guides" and we answer them. I've gotten this question before and I looked it up online. The consensus is roughly 450 licks, sometime a few less if you have lots of saliva.
